“I chose SDSU mostly because of the atmosphere. Brookings is a nice sized town, everyone is super friendly and I feel safe and at home here. The school has a good reputation in academics as well as athletics which is a nice bonus. I really liked the coach and team and we have a promising future. Not only all that, but SDSU has a good balance of original and modern facilities and buildings. It just seemed like a perfect fit.”
